LESLIE COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - A woman says Facebook helped save her life.

Susann Stacy says her husband left her badly beaten at their Leslie County home. So to get help, she posted an urgent plea on her Facebook page.

Stacy posted a picture of her face with the words, "Help please anyone."

"Several lacerations to the head. They appeared to be bad but we really couldn't tell at the time, due to her hair was matted to her, and the blood," Leslie County Sheriff's Deputy Sam Mullins said of Stacy's injuries.

Stacy reported to the Leslie County Sheriff's Office that her husband heard her in the bathroom on the phone with another man. She says he confronted her, and beat her with a handgun. She said he ripped the phone line out, leaving her with no way to call 911.

To make matters worse, she had no cell reception, but she did have WiFi. So Stacy turned to social media for help.

When deputies arrived, they say Stacy's husband, Donnie Stacy, had left the house. Deputies soon found him, and arrested him nearby.

Deputies say they later found the handgun used in the attack near a tire swing the couple's son uses.
